Welcome to “On What Matters,” a conversation series in which Ford Foundation leaders talk to our social justice grantees on the frontlines of change.

In this episode, Sarita Gupta, Ford’s vice president of U.S. programs, interviews Jamila Hodge, CEO of Equal Justice USA, a national organization that works to transform the justice system by promoting responses to violence that break cycles of trauma. 

Jamila outlines the importance of community-based responses to violence that take a trauma-informed approach and meet people where they are.
